The week in re(ar)view
Off with clothes
The land has landed
The study found that a 1950 earthquake accelerated the sediment flow by causing huge landslides in the Himalayas. One country's earthquake is another country's sedimentary gain.
Kung fu against land grabbers
If the grabbers don't comply with the order within one and a half months, Dhaka Metropolitan Police, Dhaka City Corporation, Water Supply and Sewerage Authority, Deputy Commissioner's Office and League of Extraordinary Kungfu Masters (LEKM) will launch a joint canal recovery operation. Recruitment for LEKM is underway at the RS office.
Crooked Cakes of Chittagong (not a rock band)
The rotten eggs were reportedly brought from Gazipur for supply to different bakeries. Question isn't whether these bad eggs are bad for health but more importantly, how on earth do they make food with bad eggs and people can't tell the difference? Have they developed a new way to make bad eggs edible? More importantly, why did the chickens cross the road to lay bad eggs?
Good time to be a public (sector) woman
This is to help improve the malnutrition status of children, as the mother will be able to breast-feed her baby for six months after birth. However, in private sectors including garment factories, a large number of women are working without getting any maternity leave. The Finance Division will hold a meeting next week in this regard.
Break ship, pay for it

Why I'm Right
A statement of apology:
I am Grand. There never was any doubt about it.
As for the repetition: see, what your mediocre-sized brains can't comprehend is that RS has teenage wussy readers such as yourselves, and teenage wussy readers write to the Doctor, and all wussy teenagers have the same wussy teenage problems. So what is the Doctor to do about your juvenile hindrances that you can't run to your mommy about? Or give an emo haircut about, would be more appropriate. Not to mention RS' pubescent censorship rules which don't really allow Me to even come close to revealing your flaws. When your oestrogen levels drop down (at this rate, doesn't look like it's going to be before you're forty five), and you have problems worthy of Me not having to repeat Myself over and over again, you can come back. I'll even throw in a compliment for the new bleak look your life has taken. At least, you'd have changed.
All of you lovelove me. Don't deny it.
Oh, this was a rant more than anything. And I quite enjoyed it. Didn't think it was funny? Good. It's all true. This is why I irk so many of the pointless readers I have. I'm always right. To the hatehaters: Do not beat yourself up. You tried. Now what, more hatemail? Even though you're loathe to admit it, I keep things interesting. To the lovelovers: I lovelove you, too. To the women: Keep it dumb. Like I needed to tell you that. And to the people who think I'm a girl: That is low, man. I'd prefer being called a dog.
Hello, everybody. Guess who's back and will keep coming back? That's right. The Doctor's in the House. And I'm Grander than ever and still making Cupid cry for his mommy so hard that Noah could sail in the tracks of his tears.

A shoutout to Anthea for lovelovin' it the way it should be done. And Lady Lovelove, you'll always be the Oneone.

Word on our last issue:
Usama Masud: Hello there, whoever is behind all the craziness, tell me how I can sue you guys. The first issue of Dr. Lovelove made me fall from my living room sofa and rather than "laughing" my behind off, I broke it!
Tasmia Tasin: I never expected Kokoro-chan to write more than just anime reviews; but still I liked his/her "Biology Lab Tales: Cockroaches". I request the RS staff: Can all of you staff members give us your interviews, like your likes, dislikes, when and why did you join RS Team; something like that because I really love all of your works in RS.
Tabassum Mokhduma: I don't know why, but I still feel like RS was at its best between 1999-2004.
Zarin Khushnud: I liked Babu! And the picture on the cover page was so cute! The pink shoes..WOW! Oh, and the teddy bear...aww!
Ashraf Uz Zaman: Another proficient piece of writing by Shehtaz Huq, 'For Grey Skies.' The kind of write up that makes you read it till the last words and in the end, resonates with your thoughts. 'Mehman Miseries' was an interesting read. Love-love was Mundane-mundane, failed humour. As for the cover, I had anticipated something different (remember, it was Earth Day) and appealing than this (sorry, Musarrat). Was surprised to see IPL-ICL-NCL stuff when so much is going on in EPL.
PS: Emil/Elius can we have a tech-review on next issue, FB 'liking' the Web, perhaps?
Adeeba Rahman Risha: Hey RS! This week was awesome, loved the cover story. Missing HU and S.N Rasul a lot
Samiha Rahman: I'm not a big Musarrat fan, but I have to admit, her cover story was AWESOME! Shehtaz Huq's story was a masterpiece, and the movie reviews were cool too. Dr. Lovelove showered us with His Awesomeness once more, you're simply the best!
My life would suck without RS!
Md Shahadat Hossain: The Bio Lab article- Couldn't stop laughing. A great piece of humour. Haven't read something like this for a considerably long time. Eagerly waiting for his next one...(hopefully about worms)
Walid Rahman: This week's RS was a classic. The cover story captured today's reality. The Bio lab article was highly satisfying and humorous. But what made my day was 'Because'. Hats-off to Murgi and Kauwa for that masterpiece. What they wrote about the Swat Kats absolutely depicted my thoughts, word to word… made me remember my childhood delights. I actually cut that writing out and stuck it on my wall board! 'Because'- the BEST article I've read yet!
Sonia Mozahid: I appreciate and agree with the writer of Larger Than Life article. It is really important to think and discuss about these issues. Besides technological advances, we should think about our morals. I look forward to read more about these topics.
